20 years later...
I grew up in North Delta in the lower mainland. It was a great place to grow up. 19 years ago I moved to Hope with my wife and 1 year old son for a Employment promotion opportunity. At first we thought we would stay for a couple of years and then move back to a larger community in the lower mainland since that is what we were used to.
Now, my son is in his 3rd year of university at UFV Abbotsford but still lives in Hope and my daughter is in grade 12. I thought North Delta was a great place to live but Hope is the best!
We are surrounded by nature and people that make Hope a community in the truest sense of the word.
We wouldn't change a thing. This is a great place to live, work and play.
